IN MY ABSENCE .....

Apologies I haven't been around for the last week or so. A malware meant the computer was out of order for a few days and then, wouldn't you know it, I came down with a nasty chest infection.

Anyway, on the positive side. I received the results of my latest MRI last week and I'm relieved to report that all is well, that there is no sign of any growth, so I will continue to be monitored with the possibility of radiotherapy should things change.

AND .....


A group of us are about to start an interesting project. We are going to write a chain story book and all the monies will go to Alzheimer's Society research. 
Thank you to the following people who will each write a chapter .. Tracy Terry, Ann Bowyer, Emma Bunn, Lesley Krier Tither, Jo Wilde and thank you to Lily Tarbox who will be asking her niece to design the whole cover for us.

Yes, you read right, I'm honoured to have been approached by Suzan Collins, author of amongst other books the wonderful Chatty Cat: The First Six Months, to write a story in aid of the Alzheimer's Society. Excited and nervous all at the same time I'll be sure to let you know how I'm progressing and in the meantime in my absence please accept this from me ....

So glad to see you back here. I always miss your posts when you're away.

I think the writing project sounds great! I'm sure you're up to the task and I look forward to hearing more about it. I hope it will be in a format so those of us on this side of the Atlantic can purchase it, too.

What a wonderful opportunity, Tracy! Congratulations. I look forward to hearing about your progress.

I am so glad too to hear that there has been no growth. What a relief that must be for both you and your husband.

I am sorry, however, to hear you have been ill. May you have a smooth and quick recovery.
